Thanks for the explanation, it's very kind of you!


You are right, this actually works. However, this will also exclude the trees
whose property value is empty, for example, the following tree will be excluded,
which will not be excluded if "myproperty<>nil" syntax works:

* Tree

But there's probably no point to have such empty property after all. So you
approach is acceptable. Thanks!

Understood - I like to give more complete information for two reasons:

1) I don't know what you have seen already, so maybe I can save an
   exchange or two on the list by being more complete - and if you
   have seen it already, no harm done.

2) Perhaps I'm fooling myself, but I like to think that somebody down
   the line is going to have the same question, and if gmane ever
   comes back :-), they might be able to search the list and find the
   information that they need without having to send an email to the
   list (or even if they do, somebody might be around who remembers
   and can do the search and reply with "See this message").

So no disparagement/offense meant at all, that is just my modus operandi.
